Legislation that would limit the ability of cities and counties to restrict cellphone towers is a step close to being law in Missouri...again.
State senators approved a series of bill Thursday that would reinstate many of the provisions of a 2013 law that were struck down in court for violating the single-subject requirement of the state constitution. Lawmakers split the measures into five separate bills this time around.
The legislation is aimed at creating uniform standards for communications companies expanding cellphone and Internet services.
Many cities oppose the rules over conflicts with their own zoning and land-use regulations.
